Big Sean is one of hip-hop’s worst misnomers, and not just because the guy is only five-foot-eight. Everything about the Detroit rapper screams “twerp.” In his inexplicably frequent guest spots on gargantuan hits by A-list rappers, he is the kid brother begging to tag along — a pest, a nuisance, a whoopie cushion rapping about assquakes. Thanks to Grantland’s Chris Ryan, I can’t shake the image of Sean as a plastic lawn flamingo. And he’s just as much of a pesky cornball in his own music. On “Control,” his recent non-album track, Sean was an afterthought, swallowed up whole by Kendrick Lamar along with Jay Electronica and the rest of the universe. Throughout Hall of Fame, the record Sean released last month via Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint, he is a walking, talking embodiment of “giggity.” Lately, he’s been favoring the adlib “Oh god,” which pretty much sums up how I feel when I hear his voice. Still, sometimes I can’t help but cackle along with him when he drops a clunker like, “I don’t give a fuck about feelings/ I ain’t no dentist.”
